Q: My husband has arthritis in his ankles so he needs to keep them warm. In winter he finds just rolling up his socks to cover them is not enough and they cause him pain. Would it be permissible for him to keep his trousers over his ankles to keep them warmer?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
